Double Chocolate Pudding
This amazing dessert will surely become one of your favorites. And here is a useful tip – for the best results, use high-quality chocolate and cocoa. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare and it will serve 6. It is also a fantastic make-ahead dish.
- 2 ¼ cups whole milk
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch / potato starch
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, chopped
- 1 large egg + 2 large egg yolks
- 5 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped or grated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
Combine ¼ cup sugar with 2 cups of milk and let it boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add the salt and as soon as it boils, remove from the stove and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Whisk the cornstarch with the remaining sugar and the cocoa and add the remaining milk. Whisk the mixture until it becomes smooth and add to the hot milk in the saucepan. While whisking, heat over medium heat until it boils. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 2 minutes, whisking until it thickens.
In another bowl, beat the egg and the yolks and slowly add a cup of the pudding until incorporated. Then, add the egg and pudding mixture into the saucepan and bring to a boil again over medium heat. Cook for about two minutes.
Then, strain the pudding into a bowl, add the chocolate and the butter, and stir until melted. Pour the pudding into 6-ounce bowls or cups and refrigerate.
Healthy Chocolate Fudge Bars
When we get a chocolate craving, we don’t necessarily associate the word “healthy” with it. However, these amazing bars may change your mind and make you crave them in the future! And, if we disregard the time they spend in the freezer, they are done in no time!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup dates, pitted
- ½ cup unsalted almonds
- ¼ cup unsalted peanuts
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons almond/peanut butter
- 4 tablespoons honey
Soak dates in warm water for 20 minutes, drain, and add to a food processor with peanuts, almonds, and ¼ cup of cocoa powder. Mix until combined and spread the mixture on an 8×8 pan, pressing it down using a spoon. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and mix well. Pour over the first layer and spread evenly. Freeze for half an hour and cut into bars.
Dark Chocolate Bark
While we are on the no-bake desserts train, let’s mention this amazing bark. Only a mouthful of it can satisfy any chocolate lover’s cravings! And, it cannot get any simpler than this with only four ingredients.
- 1 lb. dark chocolate (60-75% cacao)
- 1 ¼ cup roasted almonds
- ½ cup roasted pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup roasted sunflower seeds
Chop the chocolate into fine pieces and melt in a bowl over boiling water. When it has melted about 2/3 of the way, remove from heat and stir until it has melted altogether. Add the almonds and seeds to the melted chocolate and pour onto a lined baking sheet. Chill for 10-15 minutes until it sets and remove onto a work surface. Break the bark into pieces and serve.
